Instead, I worked on the Pink Parfait by Rebecca Leigh. The pattern is in a leaflet called Beautiful Baby Boutique by Annie's Attic. This dress is for Katrina's baby, who will be born tomorrow!
My model's name is Teddy and Pi insists Teddy is a boy. She was fairly offended that I would put a dress on Teddy, but since he's in a dress, I'll call him Theodora for now. :)~
The dress is sized approximately 9-12 months. The pattern only goes up to a 6 month sizing, but I wanted something the baby could use when she was a bit older. I remember getting so much newborn stuff for Pi, but practically nothing sized larger than 6 months. I used a thicker yarn and went up a hook size to get the larger size.
The pink is Lion Cotton and the white is Sugar and Cream.
I love the pineapple design and it worked up very quickly. I love Rebecca Leigh's patterns!
I also recently sent 2 baby blankets off to a woman in CA who is collecting them for the NICU in her area. The NICU helped save her child's life and she is trying to pay it back by delivering 60 blankets by Christmas. I started these about a month ago and worked on them in spurts.
This one is just plain grannies in an unknown variegated yarn, pink Caron pounder, and white RHSS. Talk about stash busting. It measures 25x25.
This next one is from Precious Moments Doll and Afghan leaflet from Annie's Attic**. I used Joanns Rainbow Boucle and a J hook. Since I wanted it to be much smaller than the pattern, I cut down the amount of starting chains and did less pattern repeats. It measures 27x24 and is so so soft!
